SALT LAKE CITY— Going into July, Salt Lake City had yet to see a 100-degree day in 2023. As of Tuesday morning, there have been eight of them.

KSL Meteorologists are forecasting a high of 99 degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday and highs above 100 degrees for the rest of the week.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Seaman told KSL NewsRadio this heat wave is actually long overdue.

“This hot, dry air we’ve seen in…July, that’s something we typically see in June,” Seaman said. “Everything’s…been delayed about a month.”

Seaman said we’re starting to work our way into the monsoon season, meaning rain could become a little more common.

Additionally, he expects temperatures to stay hot through August and early September. No telling yet how many triple digit days await during that time, but Seaman said it’s unlikely we’ll come close to the record 34 100-degree days Salt Lake City saw in 2022.

As of Tuesday morning, no upcoming excessive heat watches or warnings have been issued for the Wasatch Front or anywhere else in Utah.

Seaman said we’ll also start to see some short-term relief at night, with overnight lows dropping back into the 70’s for this week’s forecast. Recently, some nights were not getting cooler than 80 degrees.
